A small bedroom can be charming, but you don’t want it to feel too compact. Fortunately, it isn’t difficult to create the illusion of space in an area. This is as easy as implementing a few small tricks to help you maximize the space you have. As such, we’ve created a list of some simple ways you can make your bedroom look bigger.
Use Light Colors
One of the best things you can do to make an area feel larger is to integrate light colors into the palette. You can do this with the walls as well as with the furniture. If you have darker furniture, you can use slipcovers to brighten up the color scheme. We have both chair covers and futon covers to help fulfill your furnishing needs.
Hide Away Storage
One of the best things you can do for your room is to conceal all clutter. Use storage bins under the bed and in the closet. If you have a lot of clothes, you can use vacuum-sealed bags to create even more space.
Leave the Center of the Room Open
Try to arrange your furniture away from the center of the room. Your bed will look great in the corner by the window, and keep your chair pushed under your desk if you have one. Carpets also make a space feel smaller, so we recommend avoiding those.
There’s nothing quite like patterns to make a room feel incredibly busy, and this can make the walls appear to fold in. If you want to use patterns, try to avoid concentrated options such as paisley and opt for something like a clean chevron instead.
We aren’t saying you have to take up minimalism, but an abundance of decorations won’t exactly make a small area seem larger. If you’re someone who enjoys pictures and the like, consider using a tack board or string light with clips to display them. This will help you show off your personality without overcrowding the space.
Mirrors are a simple way to create the illusion of space. Their reflection of light and depth creates a visual effect that makes an area feel notably larger. Consider creating a pattern with small mirrors for wall ornamentation.
